  • How to bake a chocolate cupcake. Chocolate Bacon Toffee Cupcakes W/ Maple Cream Cheese Icing - Step 1
    Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 350.

    Cook your bacon until crispy/crunchy, and slice into tiny chunks.(If you would like, reserve a small handful of chunks for garnish.)

  • Step 2

    In a large bowl, beat BUTTER until softened, then beat in SUGAR.

    Step 4

    In a separate bowl: Combine FLOUR, BAKING POWDER, BAKING SODA, SALT, and COCOA POWDER. Mix gently together with a whisk.

    Now you have two bowls — One of wet ingredients, and one of dry. (Skipping the previous step for the sake of time WILL affect your final product, so try not to be lazy.)

  • Step 5

    Add MILK and VANILLA EXTRACT to your wet ingredients and mix.

  • Step 6

    Slowly mix your dry ingredients into the larger wet ingredients bowl. Do not add all at once.

  • Step 7

    Gently fold the TOFFEE and BACON into your batter.

    Step 9

    This recipe makes exactly 20 CUPCAKES.
    Put them in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.

    After 20 minutes, put a toothpick through one of them and see if it comes out clean. If not, they are not cooked yet and need to be baked for another 3 - 5 minutes.

    (Our cupcakes took 23 minutes and 30 seconds to bake.)

  • Step 10

    Now you should make the icing...

    Beat butter and cream cheese together until very creamy.

  • Step 11

    Alternate between adding your sifted powdered sugar and maple syrup. Add, then mix, and repeat until everything is in that bowl.

    You’re all done! This is a simple and very good frosting for any kind of cupcakes. Chop up the two pieces of bacon you set aside, frost the cupcakes, and top with a chunk ‘o bacon.

    I’d love to see how yours turned out.
